Carlisle in Loan Talks with Preston

Carlisle in Loan Talks with Preston

Clarke Carlisle looks set to join Preston on a season-long loan deal.

Eddie Howe confirmed the situation today and said on the Club's official website:

'The club have agreed a deal and now it is up to Clarke to agree things with Preston'

Carlisle, 31 struggled to get into the first-team towards the end of last season with a number of Clarets fans becoming highly critical about his performances.

He still has one year left on his contract but his days at Burnley look to be numbered now should he spend the whole season away from Turf Moor at League 1 Preston.

Howe continued by saying:

'He has been a fantastic servant for the club and I can't speak highly enough about him as a player and a person.

'His attitude and commitment to the cause can never be questioned and if goes, he goes with our best wishes'

The defender and last season's vice-captain was noticeably absent from today's line up in the pre-season friendly at Altrincham fuelling earlier speculation this week that he was about to jump ship and sign for that lot down the M65. It had been thought he might move there on a permanent deal rather than a season-long loan but the end result is still the same. Carlisle is now understood to be in talks with Phil Brown trying to finalise personal terms

A season-long loan? sounds like we will still be part paying his wages then, I would prefer to keep Carlisle and ship Cort out, Leon not Carl ;-)

Well we definitely need a new centre-half now unless we are pinning our hopes on Cort!! Bikey & Edgar could be a good pairing with Duff also in contention. Thought Preston may have gone for Cort since he did OK for them on loan last season by all accounts. The fact they haven't could say a lot!!

Brown told the Evening Post: “We have been in constant contact with Burnley with regards a number of issues." Wonder if Cort is 'another issue'? Can't see them going for Iwelumo on his wages! Let's hope one issue might be Keith Treacy coming t'other way! That's all gone quiet since the Toons entered race although Wiki states '4 clubs, including local rivals Blackpool,Burnley and fellow Championship strugglers Crystal Palace had come in with offers for the winger. However, Preston are now believed to have agreed a fee with an unknown Championship club for winger Treacy, with a move to the capital his preferred destination.'

Yep HC. totally agree! We have ferked it up and until Clarets fans realise it and stop looking for excuses and extoling the virtues of a 'small town mentality' board, we always will! Heard today on another board that BK is ready to resign! He has done a lot of good things,but all good things come to an end and I cant wait for a new stance and a new approach!

I actually don't think Carlisle was that bad! On his day, a great centre back and one that could be impressive with his head from set pieces! I suspect a lot of Burnley fans did not like his political stance on Question Time (Lib Dem) nor liked the fact he sounded educated and was perhaps sounding too big for his boots! ( PFA Chairman etc) Small town mentality is catching!!
